AC Milan v Napoli Betting Tips & Odds

In our AC Milan v Napoli betting preview we look at the best possible bets between the two sides.


Sunday sees two of Italy’s biggest teams go face to face for what is expected to be an exciting match. Napoli travel to the San Siro with the Serie A title still in their sights. However, already four points behind Juventus, who top the table, anymore dropped points may end any hope they have of closing the gap. They’ve been in great form all season only losing twice, but have been making hard work of things recently. AC Milan are in a battle to hang onto a European place, they’ve been in great form since Gennaro Gattuso to charge and will want to continue that. With not long left in the season both teams will be looking for three points.

Improving AC Milan

This season has been a re-build for AC Milan. They’ve brought in a number of players throughout 17/18. They now have a very young and exciting team to build on for the future. At the start of the year they really struggled and it looked like it would be another disappointing season. However, since Gennaro Gattuso was given the AC Milan job at the end of November they have looked like the Milan of old. Since his arrival they’ve only lost three Serie A games. Despite their great run they’ve failed to win in their last three, but two of games have come up against Juventus, which they lost 3-1 and city rivals Internationalize coming out with a 0-0 draw. Napoli are the last big team they’ve left to play, if they can get something from this game they should be set for another year of European football.

With the number of addition made during the summer not all of them will make the cut. Young Portuguese striker Andre Silva is the most notable of their failed signing and has been heavily linked away from the club. It is defensively that AC Milan have strengthened the most, with Ricardo Rodriguez and experienced defender Leonardo Bonucci coming in. The addition of these players have given Gattuso a platform to build from. Despite all the addition it is the players already at the club that have been the stand out performers. Suso and Patrick Cutrone are the clubs top goal scorer and will be a handful for Napoli, with Bonaventura running the midfield AC Milan should cause Napoli problems. Still with a very young team AC Milan are only going to improve.

Napoli still in the hunt for the Serie A title

Napoli have had a great season. Over the years Juventus have dominated the Serie A with no team coming close. However, this year Napoli are looking to take them all the way. They’ve been top of the table for a large part of the season but Juventus have begun to show their class during the second half of the season. Napoli have been playing some of the most attractive football in all of Europe and has been changing opinion on the style of Italian football. During the second half of the season Napoli haven’t been able to keep up with Juventus but with Rail Albiol and Jorginho coming back into the staring line up Napoli will be close to their best.

The front three of Lorenzo Insigne, Dries Mertens and Jose Callejon has been scintillating all season, between them they’ve scored 33 goals. Napoli move the ball around very quickly moving through the third and create a lot of goal scoring opportunities. As a team they’re at some times unstoppable but with the tricky front three who possess an abundance of flair and guile they have players that can win the game on their own. Coming up against an AC Milan that will be very organised and hard to break down, Napoli will have to be at their attacking best. Defensively Napoli have also been very impressive, hunting in packs and winning the ball back very quickly. A win here at the San Siro will be important if they wish to end Juventus’s dominance in Serie A.
